Matteo Chiesa


Professor / Renewable energy

Job description

As a material scientist working on creating and implementating technologies necessary to adapt the current energy system into a more sustainable, competitive and secure one. I design and investigate engineered nanomaterials for solar energy conversion and storage systems. Currently I focus my research on tackling specific challenges related to the deployment of renewable energy under arctic conditions through a synthetic and symbiotic approach. I cultivate interdisciplinarity and combine technologies to create optimal solutions while ensuring their harmonious integration in a societal context to achieve sustainable living and the wellbeing of people. This approach has characterized my research at Masdar Institute (now KU) where, since 2007 I have systematically tackled several of the major challenges related to solar energy implementation in desert environment. The outcome of my research has been pivotal in the realization of photovoltaics projects promising electricity at record-low prices with PPA (power purchase agreement) bids reaching as low as 1.79c/kWh.
